Dear Prayer Partners,

  It’s been a busy few weeks and I have been remiss in updating you about Mervin Lockyer.  About three weeks ago He reached a plateau concerning his rehab at Ignite Rehab Center so Shirlee had to make arrangement to bring him home with help from Home Health Care.  I talked with Mervin on the phone today and he sounded stronger and in good spirits.  Please continue to pray for Mervin to regain strength and balance/coordination.  Also pray for Shirlee as she provides most of his care.


  Brian Veal is the associate pastor at FBC, Moberly, MO.  He and his wife Karla have two boys, Mason and Greyson.

  On July 19, 2019 Greyson was diagnosed with B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He was 13 months old when his battle began 7/22/2019.  Today he is 2yrs 9months.  After much treatment Greyson relapsed in December, 2020 and was no longer responding to chemotherapy.  On March 11, 2021 he began CAR T-Cell therapy and today it was announced that the CAR T-Cell therapy failed.  Greyson’s cancer is so very aggressive and fast growing that there are no good treatment options left.

  Greyson is very sick right now. Some of this may be CRS from the T-Cells. Some of it may also be the leukemia. He is on a ventilator right now.

  The families focus has now shifted to comfort and quality of time he has left. They are hoping to get him off the ventilator and be able to take him home.

  Please pray for this precious family and especially for Greyson’s comfort.
